WMFW- "lighter" french toast sticks

One of the favorites around our house is French toast. However.....due to the "dietary change"...I am no longer allowed the "higher calorie" version lol. Here is what we have come up with to try and salvage one of our favorite breakfasts!

*Flour, white, 2 cup

Salt, 1/2 tsp

Cream of tartar, 1/2 tsp

Granulated Sugar, 2T

Baking Powder, 4 tsp

Applesauce, unsweetened, 1/2 cup

Milk, nonfat, .2/3c

Cinnamon sugar

spray oil

Fat: 0.6g
Carbohydrates: 48.7g
Protein: 6.3g
Mix together all ingredients. Knead the dough on a lightly foured surface for about 1 minute. Roll into a rectangle about 8X8 (or bigger if you like yours thinner). On a cookie sheet, spray with oil and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Place dough on cookie sheet and then spray with oil and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 24 "sticks." Bake for 15 minutes and serve with your favorite toppings :)

Number of Servings: 5

I've never made homemade French toast. This looks amazing enough for me to try cooking again tomorrow.
